  • Strong: Four times stronger than nylon fishing line of similar diameter
  • Thin: Allowing anglers to cast further and more smoothly through the guides on their poles than when using nylon monofilament lines of an equivalent strength
  • Sensitive: Helping anglers feel the slightest movement on their line
  • Durable: Due to the fiber’s outstanding abrasion resistance and high resistance to chemicals and UV light
